Year 9 PEE to PEARL: War Lit

There is much discussion on Twitter about the best way to teach students to analyse.  The mighty @FKRitson is currently collating many ideas form a range of schools and i have sent my ha’p’orth on PEARL.  I know that instilling too rigid a structure can create rather mechanical responses, but I like this one – it works and the students can learn to move away from it over the next 3 years, as their confidence grows.

 

We are looking at a War Poetry selection.  This is to support their first writing.
